The Swan 77, designed by German Frers represents a true cruising Swan with an amazing ability to provide a platform for Regatta sailing if required. She is of heavier displacement than her newer sisters but this model is still as popular as ever. Very high internal volume allows for excellent stowage, sleeping and living accommodation.
This example was built as her first owner’s second Swan 77 (and his third Swan). As such she is optimized for simple, short-handed cruising. However she would also make a superb charter yacht for any owner looking to offset some of the running costs.
TUGELA is a rare extended version of the Swan 77 and is actually 80 ft in LOA.
During each ownership the yacht has enjoyed impeccable care and maintenance.
She also benefits from some major upgrades.
